MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — Mayo Clinic Health System - Fairmont restructures its surgical services, cutting six jobs as a result.

Operating room hours will change effective January 2, 2020, according to the health provider.

According to a press release, surgery, except Ear, Nose, or Throat (ENT) related procedures, will remain four days a week from the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Emergency obstetrical surgeries, also called C-sections, will continue to be available 24/7.

ENT surgeries will be referred to the Mankato campus beginning January 2, 2020.

The change also means the loss of four nursing positions as well as one health unit coordinator and one sterile processing technician.

Mayo says the changes are a part of an ongoing evaluation and the affected areas were determined to have low usage.
